The simplest way to get 2018 ACU registration and Club Membership sorted is to click here follow the link and when prompted choose Option A which enables you to renew Club Membership at the same time as ACU Registration. The ACU pass the info and Club Membership payment on to us. Keeps it nice and simple, all done in one go, no faffing about with Affiliation codes and you just need to bring your ACU card to a trial to prove you have both ACU registration and Club Membership for 2018. Call them on 01788 566417 if there’s a problem.

Thanks to Simon Green we still have the same title sponsor for the Club Series in 2018 but the trials are now named SGME (Simon Green Motor Engineers – Click on the ‘Sponsors’ tab in ‘Info’ for the place to go for your servicing).

ACU Registration – system glitch.
Apparently, the ACU haven’t catered for riders wishing to change their ‘host’ club when renewing ACU registration. If this affects you, give them a ring on 01788 566417 and they should be able to sort it out.

For all Club Membership enquiries, (including ACU Affiliation numbers), please contact Graham Wilson directly either by email (gericwilson@ntlworld.com) or phone (0113 217 6509) but NOT via Facebook or the Contact Form on here.

Where are our Trials? Just about everything you need to know about a trial (including the results afterwards) can be found by clicking on that specific ‘Event’ including a map of the location. There’s a bit more info on the locations (and maybe even the nearest postcode) in ‘Locations’ which is revealed when you mouse over the ‘Info’ tab.

RESULTS:- we always try to get the results up on the relevant ‘Event‘ page on here and there is a shortcut to them by clicking on the results message in the ‘recent events’ section just on the right (or below if you are reading this on a phone).
They arealso on
www.facebook.com/horsforthtrials as soon as they are available (usually on the night of the trial unless something prevents it) so remember to have a look there – or if you are on facebook, ‘like’ our page and the results will come to you!
We also like to support TrialsCentral so the events and results can usually be found on there too although on a few occasions we’ve had trouble submitting them successfully.
Quickest way for recent events is to click on the result line on the right here (or below if you are reading this on a phone) in Recent Events. For historical results just go the the relevant ‘Event’.

All our day time trials start at 11.

Just a reminder of our Club Trial changes (that go back to the start of 2016) here 

Costs held for 2018
Membership £10, (£5 16 & under), includes Swaine Woods access, Day membership £2
Club Series Trials, £15 adults, £10 16 & under
Other Trials might be dearer (usually Yorkshire Group Trials) as specified on the Regs.
Day ACU Registration £3.

Remember, if you ‘like’ our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/horsforthtrials) you’ll get a notification reminding you of our next trial in the week before and also when the results are posted.Update; seems that, coincident with now receiving lots of unsolicited (paid for!) notifications, no longer is everyone receiving all FB/Horsforth posts on their FB page. Can only suggest that more frequent ‘liking’ might help improve the latter problem; I guess we are stuck with the former.
If anyone can throw any light on this please let us know.
